Canadian Science Policy Conference

November 1, 2017 — November 3, 2017

Location:Shaw Convention Centre


Because 2017 is Canada’s 150th Anniversary, the CSPC themes are being structured within the following context:

  • How effectively have we used science-based knowledge to meet Canada’s challenges over the past 150 years and also today?
  • How should we use science-based knowledge more effectively over the next 50 years to meet Canada’s challenges?

And here are the five themes of CSPC 2017:

1. What are Canada’s likely challenges in the next 50 years, and how can scientific knowledge be used to solve them?

2. How does Canada get the new scientific knowledge it needs?

3. How do we strengthen the environment for the production and integration of new scientific knowledge?

4. How can we more effectively bring new and existing scientific knowledge to bear on Canada’s challenges?

5. How do we engage the public in Canada’s science system?
